Patient and public engagement strategy development
In July 2018, the Trust’s Board of Directors approved a new Patient and Public Engagement Strategy (PDF 490Kb). The strategy was developed by the Trust patient and public engagement (PPE) team, together with the Trust patient and public engagement strategy steering group and through engagement with staff, patients, public governors and Foundation trust members and our local healthwatch bodies.
What is the strategy about?
We believe patients, their families and carers, together with staff and the wider community, should be partners in the design, development and delivery of services. The support and contributions of patient-public stakeholders continues to be important, as we work together to find ways to provide high quality care and services in different ways, but with constrained resources.
The findings of the Trust’s annual PPE impact report (PDF 204Kb) demonstrate the numerous and wide-range of activities of the many departments (clinical and corporate) across the Trust. This updated PPE strategy continues to build on this work.
